Never Lose Your Praise!

November 2nd, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever experienced hard times in your life?  Times that made you want to give up on life, yourself and even God.  You may never tell anyone, but there are times when you feel like giving up.  You have tried everything and everyone, but nothing worked out the way you wanted things to.  You often question God’s love toward you.  Have you ever been hit by life’s uppercut?  Out of no where an unforeseen circumstance caught you off guard.  Maybe someone you loved dearly passed away.  Maybe a job you enjoyed was taken from you.  Maybe the friend you cherished walked away from you.  Have you ever experienced the bitterness of betrayal?  You have always been loyal to family and friends but in return you did not receive the same from them?  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I know how it feels to question life and the hurdles that come with it.  I know how it feels to wonder if the Lord hears your prayers.  I know how it feels to be betrayed by friends and even family members.  These are experiences many people cannot help you overcome.  These are the pains that the love and power of God must help you through.  My friend, in spite of what you experience in life, Never Lose Your Praise!  The Bible declares in Isaiah 61:3 - To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.  There is something in your praise, which enables you to handle the daily challenges you experience.  Yes you know the attacks will come, but due to your praise you feel empowered to handle whatever it may be.

My brother, my sister, what are you going through this morning?  What dilemma do you find yourself faced with?  Do you believe your praise is a weapon against the enemy?  Never Lose Your Praise!  The Bible declares in Psalms 9:1 - I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.  Beloved, when you are able to praise the Lord, in spite of your current situation, you are sending two messages:

  1. No matter what, you will trust in the Lord
  2. No matter what, God is greater than whatever you are faced with.

On today, when things become overwhelming, keep a praise down within.  Prayer for Today; Father, allow my praise to resignate when I find myself on the verge of complaining, worrying and/or doubting.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

If You Know Better, You Should Do Better!

November 1st, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, the Lord has an assignment on your life.  In spite of what people say, think or feel about you, the Lord has a purpose just for you.  Yes there will be people who envy you.  Yes there will be traps set against you.  Yes the devil will try his best to destroy you.  No matter what is sent against you or your family, you must stand on the promises God made to you.

Beloved, understand, now is the time for you to stop doing whatever you are doing that’s displeasing the Lord.  Whatever can or will hinder your overflow from coming, now is the time for you to get things in order.  If there is anything or anyone surrounding you that’s hazardous to your health, now is the time for separation.  Better yet …

If You Know Better, 

You Should

Do Better!

Do not allow the sins of your flesh to detour you from where the Lord wants to take you!

Who Do You Owe An Apology?

October 31st, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, do you realize we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God?  Do you realize, except for Jesus Christ, no one has ever walked this earth sinless?  Do you realize each day we either hurt someone or we experience hurt?  Do you realize the words we speak produce life or death?  Do you realize there are people who find what you say offensive?  Do you realize your words and your actions should compliment each other or you will be known as a hypocrite?  Do you realize someone is always watching you?  They may never know your name but they watch you.  You may never see them, but they see you.

Beloved, I have been sent here to convict and correct your spirit.  Here is the question:

Who Do You Owe

An Apology?

Who have you mistreated, manipulated, betrayed, lied on, talked about, etc?  Who do you need to call, write, or e-mail and request their forgiveness?  Many things we pray for are placed on hold until we set the record straight.

Prayer

October 30th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and pray for you.

Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray for the recipient of this morning’s devotional.  I do not know what (s)he is faced with today, but You know.  However, under the power of the Holy Spirit I declare that no weapon formed against my brother/sister will be able to prosper.  I speak life into his/her spirit in the name of Jesus.  Whatever dilemma (s)he faces today, I speak peace.  Whatever drama surrounding him/her, I speak resolution.  Whatever doubt consuming him/her, I speak increase in faith.  Lord there is nothing too hard for You to handle.  All that we have experienced, are experiencing or will ever experience can never overwhelm You.  I pray for financial increase for my brother/sister.  I pray for good health in his/her body.  I pray for Godly wisdom, Godly knowledge and Godly understanding to become his/her bestfriend. 

Whatever (s)he stands in need of, Father according to Your will, bring it to pass.  I serve notice on the devil and every demonic force that operates under his authority, that my brother/sister shall not die but live to declare the glorious works of the Lord Jesus Christ.  devil you are a liar and you are a defeated foe.  God rebuke you devil in the name of Jesus.  Loose my brother’s/sister’s mind.  Take you hand off of his/her household.  The purpose of God for my brother’s/sister’s life shall come to pass in the name of Jesus.  

Now God, be glorified, let my brother/sister be edified and make the devil terrified, in the name of Jesus … Amen!

Get Rid Of The Dead Weight!

October 26th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, today it is time for you to do what you know needs to be done.  Today it is time for you to do what you have been thinking about for years.  Today it is time for you to obey the voice of the Lord.  Today it is time for you to make the decision.  Today it is time for you to experience liberty (freedom).  Today it is time for you to …

If All You Had Was A Praise …

October 25th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself pressed between a rock and a hard place?  Things were at a crucial point in your life.  You were too far in to be out, but too far out to be in.  Turning back was impossible and going forward appeared impossible.  You can remember the days when everything seemed to be going your way.  You were coasting along the way.  No attacks, no threats, no unforeseen circumstances, no dilemmas.  Have you ever felt empty within?  You had many people surrounding you, but within you still felt a major void.  You had the nice clothes, drove the nice car, ate at the nice restaurants, hung out with the best people and traveled to the best places.  In spite of it all, you still was not happy within.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Are you at a point in your life where you wonder if God can still use you?  Are you at a point where no one else believes in your dreams but you?  Are you staring at yourself in the mirror trying to figure out why people cannot see the changes in your life?  Do you realize there will be times in each of our lives that people will doubt, family will question, and the devil will attack?  There will be times when all you have to trust in is the Word of God.  My friend, If All You Had Was A Praise … would it be enough to get you out of your current situation?  The Bible declares in Isaiah 61:3 - To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

My brother, my sister, what are you going through this morning?  What situation do you find yourself having to deal with?  Has your job become overwhelming?  Do you realize when you praise God in the midst of “hell” you are sending a message to the enemy?  You are telling him that in spite of how bad things appear, your God is still able and willing to see you through.  Beloved, If All You Had Was A Praise … could it tear down the enemy’s walls?  The Bible declares in Hebrews 13:15 - By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.  Child of God, never underestimate the power of your praise.  It is the praises of the saints that empower us.  God inhabits our praises. If All You Had Was A Praise …make sure it can get you through!  Prayer for Today: Father, please make my praise gloriously for You!  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Have You Stopped Pursuing?

October 23rd, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever felt like giving up on life and all the demands that come with it?  After all you have done, it still seems as though things have not gotten better for you.  You treat everyone well, but storms still knock on your door.  You pray for those who despitefully use you, yet the attacks continue to mount against you.  You always offer words of encouragement to those around you, but when you need them the most there are no words coming your way.  Have you ever wondered why you keep going when everyone else has given up?  When you started out, you were surrounded by people and things.  As the journey continued many people did not.  You went from being in the crowd to being all alone.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I know how it feels to want to give up on your ministry, your life, your goals and your future.  I know how it feels to have more questions than answers, more problems than solutions, and more haters than supporters.  Quitting is easy, but fighting can be very difficult at times.  In spite of these times, I also know how it feels to know God has not forgotten about me.  The same God who keeps me on His mind, is the same God who keeps you on His mind.  My friend, Have You Stopped Pursuing?  Have you allowed the cares of life to weigh you down?  The Bible declares in Philippians 3:13 - Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

My brother, my sister, what are you dealing with today?  What dilemma do you find yourself in the midst of?  Have you allowed your job, your bills, your enemies, your family members and friends to overwhelm you?  Beloved, no matter how awful things appear at this point in your life, you must not lose your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  It is during the tough times of life that you will see the hand of God moving on your behalf.  The Bible declares in Psalms 46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Have You Stopped Pursuing?  Have you thrown in the towel?  Have you walked away from the assignment God anointed you for?  If so, repent and return.  If you are thinking about it, seek first the kingdom of God.  If no, hold on things will turn for the better.  Prayer for Today: Father, please help me hold on when things become hectic.  Help me see You in everything.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Are You In Need of A Tune-Up?

October 20th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, may I ask you a question?

Are You In Need

Of A Tune-Up?

Have you allowed yourself to go on without receiving proper check-ups?  Have you allowed yourself to become overwhelmed by the daily demands?  Have you forgotten how to take time to rest and relax?  Have you become so busy that you are no longer operating according to God’s plans?  Have you become occupied with church work (routine services, traditional programs) until you have forgotten about the work of the church (leading people to Jesus)?  Has your spirit stopped being willing?  Have you forgotten Jesus in all that you do?

Today you must find out if you are overdue for your next tune-up!
